Almay Smart Shade Luminous CC Primer

As you might already know, I absolutely love trying out new primers! Lately I've been giving Almay's Smart Shade Luminous CC Primer* a try. I love that more and more drugstore brands are bringing out new primers, because primers used to be mainly found at Sephora/department stores. Read on to see what I thought of this complexion correcting primer...

"This new primer helps provide a luminous finish while prepping your skin for makeup application. the pearly pink tones help skin look brighter and combat the appearance of dull skin. hypoallergenic. dermatologist tested. made for sensitive skin." - Almay

Almay's Smart Shade Luminous CC Primer comes packaged in a nice glass bottle. And yes, the "Y" on my label came off, but I can assure you that the company is Almay, not Alma! There's a pump dispenser, and I find one pump is the perfect amount for my entire face. This primer is a pearly pink shade that really does help to brighten my complexion. The formula is somewhat thick in consistency, but it blends out easily into my skin. Don't worry - it won't leave your face looking stark white, as the colour blends out to just leave a glowy finish to your skin. This formula will probably be best for those with dry to combination skin types. This primer helps to prolong the wear time of my foundation by 1-2 hours, which works for me!
